Rios appointed interim city clerk
Friday, November 19, 2021 by Jo Clifton
City Council said goodbye Thursday to City Clerk Jannette Goodall, who is moving to Fort Worth to become city secretary there. A few minutes later, Council appointed Myrna Rios, who has served as deputy city clerk since August 2012, as interim city clerk effective Dec. 1. She will receive a 12 percent pay raise. Prior to becoming deputy, Rios served as Council agenda process manager for five years. Council Member Vanessa Fuentes was particularly pleased with Rios’ appointment, citing her many years of service to the city. “Myrna oversees the most vital operations of our city’s democratic processes, including 70 boards and commissions, as well as City Council, and has made all of the necessary adjustments for Council to be accessible to our community throughout the pandemic,” she said.
